Forging Ahead
April 9, 2007 | Worth

Wealthy seniors far from retiring.

Gone are the days when retirement was associated with a rocking chair. Older millionaires are returning to the workforce or redirecting their energy to volunteer work and travel, according to the Northern Trust Wealth in America 2007 survey released April 2.

Among the 1,002 respondents to an online survey conducted last November and December, 48 percent said they were retired, but 29 percent have returned to the workforce—18 percent part time and 7 percent full time, with 4 percent looking for work. Among respondents older than 70, one in six remains in the workforce, either rejoining the ranks of the working after retirement or never retiring at all.

“Retired business owners and executives tell us that they want to give back the knowledge they've gained during their careers." said Gregg Yaeger, head of the financial Consulting Group at Northern Trust. “And many continue to explore and start or invest in new ventures."

Seventy-six percent of respondents said ensuring a comfortable standard of living was a key retirement Issue, while health-related issues, both financial and physical, also ranked as top concerns. The study found that 64 percent of millionaires believe It is important to pursue personal interests and hobbies in retirement; 61 percent want to travel; 53 percent desire an active lifestyle; 30 percent want to volunteer in their communities; and 30 percent would like to continue their education.

Pity the high cost of being a Canadian millionaire
February 11, 2005 | Globe & Mail Pg. B13 | ANDREW WILLIS.
Here's the good news: The ranks of Canadian millionaires are swelling.
Unfortunately, the rising cost of being rich is taking a lot of the fun
out of it. Survey this country from coast to coast, as consulting firm
Capgemini just did, and you'll find Canada is home to 450,000 folks with
more than a million bucks of invested assets. The $5-million club has
just over 54,000 members and the seriously wealthy, with more than
$20-million, number about 7,000. Most of these millionaires are
grey-haired -- 72 % are over the age of 50....Aging boomers are an
enormous opportunity for wealth management companies...In 10 years time,
Capgemini estimates the number of millionaires in Canada will soar
20-fold, to more than eight million people. This will take place in step
with an unprecedented intergenerational transfer of wealth, as 32 % of
our millionaires are over age 70..

Why focus groups tell you the obvious
Mar 24, 2010. | Financial Times. pg. 14 | Luke Johnson. Great
breakthroughs in fields such as new product development are frequently
achieved by avoiding surveys and committees altogether. Constant testing
can lead to blandness and safety-first choices. In creative affairs,
corporate brainstorming sessions usually end up with groupthink
dullness, all originality squeezed out because of the fear of failure or
through the influence of office politics. As Steve Jobs said: "It's
really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people
don't know what they want until you show it to them."
